The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers opportunities for conducting individual research projects or obtaining internships in various areas of mathematics and statistics.
This offering may take place through a Special Topics course (Math 195 or 295) with a faculty advisor, and is normally available to juniors, seniors and first-year graduate students who have already done some course work in the subject area. This work can also lead to an honors thesis from the student.
Examples of recent or current project areas include research into combinatorial game theory and surreal numbers, graph theory, and an internship at Merrill-Lynch brokerage house.
